Complete genome sequence of a new begomovirus associated with yellow mosaic disease of Hemidesmus indicus in India

Complete genome sequence of a new begomovirus associated with yellow mosaic disease of Hemidesmus... The complete DNA A genome of a virus isolate associated with yellow mosaic disease of a medicinal plant, Hemidesmus indicus , from India was cloned and sequenced. The length of DNA A was 2825 nucleotides, 35 nucleotides longer than the unit genome of monopartite begomoviruses. Comparison of the nucleotide sequence of DNA A of the virus isolate with those of other begomoviruses showed maximum sequence identity of 69 % to DNA A of ageratum yellow vein China virus (AYVCNV; AJ558120) and 68 % with tomato yellow leaf curl virus- LBa4 (TYLCV; EF185318), and it formed a distinct clade in phylogenetic analysis. The genome organization of the present virus isolate was found to be similar to that of Old World monopartite begomoviruses. The genome was considered to be monopartite, because association of DNA B and β satellite DNA components was not detected. Based on its sequence identity (<70 %) to all other begomoviruses known to date and ICTV (International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses) species demarcating criteria (<89 % identity), it is considered a member of a novel begomovirus species, and the tentative name “Hemidesmus yellow mosaic virus” (HeYMV) is proposed.
